Fireworks are about to light up the Texas sky…
Summer Hadley is a woman on a mission! She'll do anything to save her clothing store, including soliciting help from her brother's friend. But sexy, savvy businessman Ryker Evans wants nothing to do with her. So Summer does what any red-blooded Texas gal would do: She takes the bull by the horns. Waylaying Ryker in his motel room after a family wedding seemed like a good idea—and so did the bottle of persuasion, er, Patron. But business will turn into pleasure when things get a little too hot in the Lone Star State.
Ryker Evans has been asked to keep his distance from his best friend's sister. And that's just fine and dandy with him. Summer is too assertive, too opinionated . . . and too damned tempting. But all it will take is one heated kiss for his morals to melt like ice cubes in warm sweet tea, and there'll be no running from the intense feelings their night together stirs. Especially when Summer rear-ends him—literally. He's forced to recuperate from the car accident in the town of Bliss, Texas where he'll find himself torn between loyalty to his best friend and loyalty to the woman who could easily rope his heart forever.
Trapped together in the sizzling heat of a small town, will Summer and Ryker find a way to save her business and their fragile new relationship? Or will both fizzle-out like midnight on the 4th of July?

I loved these characters. Ryker, a computer nerd is the opposite of outgoing Summer. She is bound and determined to get this money from Ryker by any means necessary. There are many funny moments between these two people as they navigate through their relationship on the path to love. I highly recommend this book. This would be a great beach read.
